FIRST COMES MARRIAGE
Feisty, fearless Jody Bravo's set to do everything for her baby. She doesn't need anything from anyone—especially the stepbrother of her baby's late father. But lawman Seth Yancy won't leave her to face parenthood alone, no matter how prepared she is. And even though Jody resists, soon she's taken in completely by his charms—and agrees to be his wife…
THEN COMES LOVE?
Hunky Sheriff Yancy's not without his fair share of admirers in Justice Creek. After a terrible tragedy years before, though, he's faced life alone. Now the real-life woman of his dreams just happens to be his bride—and pregnant with the child of his heart, if not his reality. So "father" is a role that will come naturally to Seth. And will "husband" really be that far behind?
Unlikely love takes us on a rollercoaster of emotions in Christine Rimmer’s latest! Very relatable characters bring this story to life. We are taken into the heart of what it’s all about very quickly, and then we get some additional development to the story as we find out more about their past experiences and relationships. I think you’ll find yourself rooting for that happily-ever-after right along with me by the time the end rolls around!
Sheriff Seth Yancy is equally shocked and delighted when he finds out that Jody Bravo will soon be giving birth to his step-brother’s baby. His little brother was the apple of his eye, and Seth was devastated when he was killed several months back. To hear that a piece of him will live on pleases Seth to no end, and he wants to make sure he’s a part of it!
Florist Jody Bravo is a hard-working, self-reliant woman, and she likes to feel like she has everything under control. She wasn’t planning on a baby right now, but she’s happy enough with the timing and believes she’s ready to be a Mom. When Seth comes to see her, she reluctantly agrees to keep him up-to-date with how she’s doing until the baby is born … but as he’s a virtual stranger to her, it all feels a bit odd.
Seth eases himself into her inner realm anyway, and she has to admit that he’s there for her when she needs him, and she’s actually liking having him in her life. When attraction rears it’s head, how will they pursue a relationship to go along with this ready-made family? Past secrets live in between them, but will they get all they ever wanted by simply believing?
